    Brianboru after Irish High King. All other toons end with "boru" as well...helps (or hurts, as the case may be) in name recognition as well.
    Liamboru 220 Engineer - Brianboru 220 Soldier - Padraigboru 150 Soldier - Tadghboru 60 Engineer - Cormacboru 15 Engineer

    It's a fancy-pants way of saying OMG n00b.

    I've used it as a handle off-and-on in FPSs and other MMORPGs for about a decade and revived it last year when I joined Something Awful. A thread on SA brought me back to AO so I took the name with me.
    Don't mind me. I'm just passin' through.

    My forums name:

    My main's name (Tanisthonus): Dragonlance. I made the character in high school, hadn't cracked one of the books since elementary school, maybe middle, and was trying to remember the main characters name. I knew "Tanis" was his nickname, and just went from there.

    In computing, the bit bucket is jargon for where lost computerized data has gone, by any means; any data which does not end up where it is supposed to, being lost in transmission, a computer crash, or the like, is said to have gone to the bit bucket
    Bitbucket 220 neutral engineer, as played by an unemployed software engineer.
    seemed to be quite a fitting name.

    "Xyphos" (Z-eye-F-ohs) - A deliberate mis-spelling of "Xiphos" (Zif-ohs)

    is a double-edged, single-hand sword used by the ancient Greeks. It was a secondary battlefield weapon for the Greek armies after the spear or javelin. The classic blade was generally about 50–60 cm long,[1] although the Spartans supposedly started to use blades as short as 30 cm around the era of the Greco-Persian Wars.[2] The Xiphos sometimes has a midrib, or is diamond or lenticular in cross-section. It was generally hung from a baldric under the left arm.[1] The Xiphos was generally used only when the spear was discarded for close combat. Very few Xiphi seem to have survived.
    I named myself after the sword, which best describes my short double-edged personality.

    A Xiphos is also a model of electric guitar, which I used to own.

    as heard being played in my old tower PVP video:

    My first toon was a froob MP. I loved the double entendre of heavy petting (an American term for making out with a girl/boy in case you weren't aware). After I joined my org, I was totally confused in trying to keep track of all of the alts of my orgmates who didn't have a consistent naming convention. It was incredibly helpful when people had trademark names to keep track of them (we have one member who has a whole series of "Can" names; "Canrunfast" (fixer), "Candoall" (agt), etc. So, the "Hvy" series was born. I try to keep them all to phrases that would make some sort of sense in regular speech, but it's getting harder as the years go by.

    My biggest problem right now is finding a name as good as Hvypetting for my sloob MP...

    About 10 years ago when I first used a computer at school, our logons always used to be your surname + first initial. High school also followed the same system, and I then started using it on websites etc as well, and as it's pretty unique I kept it and it's just become my sorta alias now.
